Betsy Weber Sund: The Innovation 50

Senior global communications manager, Netflix

Netflix can lay solid claim to having a key role in ushering in the golden age of TV, having funded many stunning original content series, including the critically acclaimed House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. On the flip side, by showing these TV series in one go it can also be blamed (or praised) for the binge-viewing phenomenon, shaking the linear TV industry to its core.

Betsy Weber Sund joined Netflix in 2011, after three-and-a-half years at Weber Shandwick. As senior global communications manager, she looks after consumer PR in the UK, Ireland, Nordics and Netherlands, where the brand is expanding. While Netflix has ignited a huge demand for streaming video content, it has also found itself at the center of a major dispute over net neutrality in the US. Weber Sund and her team must ensure Netflix continues to supply content worthy of its price hike.
